Delegation from Forrest Research Foundation Visiting Zhejiang University

On November 5th, a delegation led by Director of the Forrest Research Foundation Professor Paul Johnson visited Zhejiang University. Director of the Graduate Affairs Office Jiang Quanyuan, Dean of Ocean College Wang Lizhong, Deputy Director of Office of Global Engagement Xu Ying and Deputy Director of Human Resource Department Lv Lijiang and other faculty members were engaged in the meeting.

Xu Ying extended a warm welcome to their coming and introduced the recent development of Zhejiang University. Jiang Quanyuan introduced the current situation of graduate education of ZJU, particularly the development concerning international cooperation and exchange of the postgraduate students from ZJU. Wang Lizhong expressed the wishes to further cooperate with universities from west Australia in the field of Ocean Research. Lv Lijiang introduced the international cooperation in the field of the post-doctoral fellowships.

Paul Johnson spoke highly of the construction and development of Zhejiang University and affirmed the cooperation results between two parties in recent two years, expecting the further cooperation with Zhejiang University in the future. Paul Johnson encouraged more students from Zhejiang University to apply for the scholarship.

After the Leadership Meeting, a campus talk took place at Hall Yuquan. Paul Johnson gave an introduction of the Forrest Research Foundation and answered the questions raised by the students interested in the scholarship.

The Forrest Research Foundation was established in 2014 with an initial gift of AU$100 million to create an elite PhD scholarship and post-doctoral fellowship program in Western Australia. The Foundation annually supports up to 12 fully-funded 4-year PhD Scholarships and 4 generous 3-year Post-doctoral Fellowships for exceptional researchers, who can be based at any of Western Australia’s five universities (though the great majority are based at UWA). The Scholarships and Fellowships are open to candidates from any nationality, and any field of research. Applicants need to have an outstanding academic track record; for example, the average GPA of Forrest PhD Scholars is 3.97/4.0, and typically they have been in the top 5% of their graduating cohort. The Scholarships and Fellowships provide some of the most generous stipends of any international scholarship and fellowship scheme, and also provide accommodation in luxury self-contained apartments in Forrest Hall, adjacent to the UWA campus in Perth.
